MERC is supported by the Faculty
The Faculty of Education has a vibrant research culture supported by our own academics and visiting scholars, and very importantly, by our diverse community of research students. We recognise the value our students bring in fostering our research strengths, and are pleased that through MERC, they have the worthy support of their peers in their educational journey.
The supportive network and friendly community engendered by MERC helps to ensure that our students’ experience is positive and fulfilling both academically and personally.
The Faculty recognises and values the unique role MERC plays in supporting our HDR students and we are proud of the contribution it makes to our research community.
